Bring on The Pumpkins, Y’all
I know pumpkin season is in full effect for most of you, but let me tell you – with my first fall in Tennessee? I know what the calendar says, but it doesn’t feel like fall. We are still posting temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s.
I wasn’t about to be deterred, though. On Saturday, we rallied the tiny people and went to the pumpkin patch. We found a great farm to visit, but oh my goodness, it was hot! Full-on sweat down the back, desperately searching for any bit of shade to sit in.
My boys are only 3, and they were more interested in the duck water slide than anything fall or pumpkin. We did manage to get them into the corn maze, but after about 15 minutes, we were being cooked alive along with the corn, so we cut through the stalks to make an exit of our own.
We never did make it to the pumpkin patch, so an Aldi pumpkin will have to do for this year (cheaper, too!). But I’m all about making it smell like fall in the house, even if the air conditioning is still on full blast. So, bring on the pumpkin recipes, right?!?
Delicious and Healthy Pumpkin Recipes? Yes, Please!
Full disclosure, I went back and forth about today’s roundup. There were so many amazing recipes for pumpkin desserts, but not all of them could be considered “healthy.” While I’m not opposed to a cheat day whatsoever, my whole eating philosophy is that I truly believe there are healthy alternatives to all of the food and desserts we love. I kind of felt like I’d be selling out if my roundup focused on the indulgent recipes and not the healthier versions. I mean, how much better is it for us if we can just make healthier alternatives to the sweets we love?
Well, let me tell you, there was NO SHORTAGE of healthy pumpkin dessert recipes – I had to cut myself off at 27! These desserts look amazing, and I’m sure you will not even miss the unhealthy stuff they’re leaving out. When you look through these pictures, it’s hard to believe they are actually healthy!
All the recipes today are either clean or paleo. I guarantee, you will feel like you’re cheating, but you’re not! So, my friends – have at it! Enjoy these treats, guilt-free!
